They may be 14,000km apart, with 15 hours of a time difference, but Danielle and Rebecca Winckworth are not letting long distance and lockdown stop them running their family's interiors business.

Former model Danielle has just come out of the surf after an evening swim on Sydney's Coogee beach when her soprano sister Rebecca is starting her day on their business, White & Green, in Medellin, Colombia.

Rebecca, a lead soloist with the Irish choral ensemble AnĂșna, should have been coming home to Wicklow next month, but now it looks like it could be September before there are flights back to Ireland.
